GSX-R R6 Throttle mod?

So I've done a little research on this and interested in doing it. Just can't really find what exactly all you need to get and what year parts from a R6 I need to get for the the throttle mod on my 07 gsxr 750. Would also like to hear and pros and coins about it from ppl who's done it or if someone could point me in the direction of a writeup that's maybe already been done on this. Thanks, Dustin

You can either do the R6 or R1 throttle mod.
I keep the R1 tube in stock.

Which one seems to be better patrick I've seen different reviews about people saying one has better results than the other as in some said the R6 gave a bigger change over the R1 or vice versa. Could you pm me some prices with shipping to Nederland, TX.

To the OP,

I would recommend a Motion Pro quick turn throttle kit. Comes with a couple different options as to how quick you want it.

If interested contact Tony (hopd) as I know he sells these things CHEAP and can usually have them here in 2 days.

Fwiw, i have these on all my bikes and love it!

180 something.....? Don't know where you buy your parts but you're getting screwed

HoPD has them for much cheaper. Also you have a couple options available with the motion pro vs the r1/r6 does only 1.

I would go with the R6 tube. I have had mine for about 6 months and I love it, it made a huge difference in throttle response.

R6 is a shorter turn than the R1, but sometimes there's not enough slack in the throttle cables for it to fit. I ran the R1 tube on my '04 gix6.

^This is correct, my 06 was a tight fit. You also have to dremel out the stock housing.
